    Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie New Jets Feud Explained
    • Updated Jul 7, 2024 at 1:10am
    Where the heck did that come from?

    Seemingly out of nowhere former New York Jets teammates were at each other’s throats on social media. Darrelle Revis got upset on Saturday, July 7 about Antonio Cromartie speaking about him during an interview on “The Jake Asman Show.”

    Cromartie, in a since-deleted tweet, said, “So now I’m getting attacked by this Lame dude @Revis24 for doin an interview w/ @JakeAsman. And I talked gr8 about him. Now I’m jealous and a Lame. Dude how am I jealous. Bruh you have your gold jacket off 3 and half yrs of gr8 play. The other 6 [shoulder shrug emoji]. NY media, Rex [Ryan], and DT [Dennis Thurman, former Jets defensive backs coach and defensive coordinator] made U.”

    Revis responded with a specific example from the 2011 season opener versus the Dallas Cowboys to call out Cromartie.

    “@CRO31 . . . ’ [Bryant]. . , , ’ . ,” Revis quipped.

    Cromartie was back in the news cycle because he accepted a coaching internship with the Jets for training camp this summer.

    Jake Asman, an ESPN radio host, and Jets YouTuber, interviewed Cromartie back in January. With Cromartie back in the news cycle ahead of training camp, Asman decided to re-share some clips from that interview on his social media channels.

    I spoke with Asman over text and he confirmed that one of the clips he shared that Revis had a problem with was regarding Cromartie’s explanation of why Revis is a Pro Football Hall of Famer.

    The 22-second clip appears to be nothing but praise from Cromartie on what made Revis special regarding his patience and tape study. However, Revis appeared to take the answer as some sort of slight.

    This isn’t the first time that Revis has been involved in a predicament like this. Last summer, Revis took a similar issue with Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Klecko who also appeared on “The Jake Asman Show” – I’m sensing a pattern here – talking about a private conversation they had about being enshrined in Canton together and how special it was.

    Joe Klecko told

    @JakeAsman
    that Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) doesn’t say a whole lot but he did say that Joe & I are the 2 best defensive players to ever play for the #Jets & we’re going in together to the
    @ProFootballHOF
    , ‘it’s cool’ + ‘a pretty good comment’
    @JakeAsmanShow

    It appeared that Klecko was merely praising Revis during his answer to Asman on the show, but once again Revis took issue with it.

    “i don’t speak to people i don’t know very well. and we did not speak based on you saying you were jealous of my success @ the Super Bowl. my mindset is clearly I’m @ the top of that list as the best ever but as a gentlemen i decided to say something cool for a headline,” Revis responded strongly on social media.

    Jets fans on social media have accused Revis of having grown old and becoming “bitter.” Revis responded to one of those fans on social media after this spat with Cromartie saying, “nah I actaully grown into no tolerance of folks throwing shots just like the one here.”

    The Beef Continued and It Isn’t the First Time Revis-Cromartie Have Argued
    Cromartie took the trash talk to a new level when he not so subtly accused Revis of faking an injury when he got beat by then New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss for a touchdown.

    “@Revis24 never faked a Hamstring injury. Played through it no matter what happen. And always took responsibility about my play. Never ran from it or pointed fingers my guy. IJS,” Cromartie clapped back.

    He included an old clip of Revis getting toasted by Moss and then grabbing for his hamstring implying that was why he got beat on the play.

    Revis denied those claims saying it was a “real” hamstring injury.

    This beef seemingly came out of nowhere randomly in the summer, but upon further review, there appears to be some history here.

    Back in 2020 Revis and Cromartie got into another heated beef on social media. That one stemmed from Cromartie defending Richard Sherman who was involved in his own social media beef with Revis.

    “@CRO31 you took a lot of years off my career for helping you out and that’s what captains on a team sacrifice for his team. I went to bat for you my guy. This is sad you jumped ship ,” Revis aggressively threw back at Cromartie.

    Revis explained on Twitter back in 2020 that the coaches put him on an island to help overcompensate for Cromartie’s deficiencies as a cover corner.

    Cromartie combated that and explained his side of the story during a television appearance on FS1’s “Undisputed.”

    Despite some of the intense attacks on social media, Cromartie said on the show that he considered himself and Revis very close friends and chalked this up to brothers fighting and disagreeing.

    It’s unclear if that still remains true after this latest spat.

    Revis is a chump. I've never liked him. He shows what a petty, jealous, ass he is. Cro was right in what got Revis into the HOF, but Revis is also right about Cro's play. Some Jets fans' memory need improving regarding Cro's play. I know that most Jets fans will disagree, but I wish the Jets had never drafted Revis.

    Revis must be totally illiterate. He has a habit of twisting praise into criticism

    Wow. I just listened to the tape - great interview by Jake Asman btw. Cro is VERY complimentary of Revis. Named him first on why he was excited to come to the Jets. He even said Revis brought he best out of the guys on the team too. Not sure what's wrong with Revis in his old age, but that there is nothing in that interview a reasonable person should be upset with.

    This is a classic example of someone saying, "Hey, you slimmed down, you look so healthy, good for you." "So what you're really trying to say is, I was a fat, disgusting slob before. Go fck yourself." o_O

    I have to say one of the funniest things I ever saw in my life as to the NFL was a gif of Antonio Cromartie refusing to tackle when he was on the Chargers. It was like he was allergic to any kind of contact.

    It was right after he first came here. I had it saved in my bookmarks but the linked died years ago. I will pay someone five bucks if they can find it.

    I think Revis is just kind of a douche with some kind of narcissistic complex. Every time he gets into it with someone, it is about how great he is and in the cases of Klecko and Cro he really had to go out of his way to find perceived slights. I don't see him going after any people associated with the Patriots or Buccaneers orgs though. I would guess it has more to do with associations with them that we didn't see, but still. Sack up, be a man and do something about that beer belly.

    He is not humble, and hey, he doesn't have to be; but he took a left turn onto Annoying Street a while ago.

    Chest thumping is off-putting in all walks of life.

    I remember him escorting Shonn Greene into the end zone as a Charger.



    Found this when I was looking for the other vid.

    Thanks for these. I really enjoyed watching these. It was great to see Cotchery, Braylon Edwards, Shonn Greene, and Sanchez making great plays, and the D coming up big. Sanchez looked much better than I remember his being. I had to laugh at the end of the 2nd video, because of course after watching all that great play, he ended with the butt fumble that was one year later on Thanksgiving Day! LOL
